Been wanting to build this for awhile. Had a little HOK candy brandywine left from a previous build and decided to use it up. Cleared with auto urethane. Interior is white.  Carbs are painted copper to try to make the engine a little less bland.  Basically an out of box build. Pretty happy with it overall.

Nice box art build. I recently bought the re-release of this kit and was disappointed it does not include the front spoke wheels that are shown on the box. It comes with 4 chrome Halibrand, 4 chrome Centerline and also stock wheels.

You must not have bought the current issue then. It has everything you see in Don's photos. This is the box to look for.

Pretty cool! These old-school retro builds are always fun, aren't they?

Very nice build. The way you used different colors to show off the different components. Great looking color and finish on the body.

Fake News!! I had another look through the kit and found the extra set of wheels. Don't know how I missed them the first time.

Real nice work. It's very cool how the improved tires we've been enjoying the last 5-6 years improve a model.
